English artist sells his SNOT for 20k

If things in England are bad enough with bombings and Prince Charles marriage , a London based artist who collected boogers from his nose for two years and displayed the resulting ball of snot at four separate art exhibitions is now ready to part with his prized possession -- to the tune of roughly $20,000.

James Robert Ford's brussels sprout-sized "Bogey Ball" now rests in a glass case on a shelf in his apartment, but he is seeking an art collector to take possession of it.

He wants no less than 10,000 British pounds for the mucus blob, explaining that each booger is a part of his body and it would be impossible for anyone to replicate. FREAK HELLO !!!!

In Ford's words, "It's a physical record of all the different places I have been and people I've met." COUGH YA THATS WHAT I WAS THINKING TOO....

So far, the artist has only received offers in the 100-to-500-pound range, but he says his snot is worth much more than that.

His desired price breaks down to roughly 10 pounds per piece of snot -- or about $18 U.S.

How does Ford feel about parting with his notorious piece of art? He says, "It will be hard to let go, but at the same time, it's hard not to have any money." OR FRIENDS WANTING TO SHAKE YOUR HANDS...
